Q?

Why the name ‘Flying Brick’:

A.

When we first designed our seat-top luggage bag, it was grey in colour, and the two ‘lids’ had not been sewn into it yet – someone in manufacturing said that it looked like a grey Air-brick (that you build with).  During the same period Chris bought a BMW K100, which have always had the nickname: Flying Brick.  He is a little quirky and has always loved the idea of a brick with wings and the “NEW BAG” needed a name.  Flying Brick, the name stuck. Subsequently, we opened a fully fledge trading store and by then was so snowed under with orders that we had no time to be creative with a name….so Flying Brick Motorcycle Accessories it was; named after our beloved first product, the Flying Brick System Luggage.
